PowerUp 400W Power Supply
Try another PSU, something a lot better. It looks woefully underspec'd, even for a 400W.
If the BIOS has defaulted to PCI-E graphics and I don't have a PCI-E graphics card, how do I get it to recognize the on-board graphics?
2. Find someone with a PCI-E graphics card I can borrow to determine if I can get any kind of video signal.
Could this be another dead MB?
Have you been able to do that yet? Another dead board? Is this a replacement & the exact same thing is happening? Starting to think along the lines something may possibly be wrong with the monitor or cable connection? The PSU should no longer be an issue since it has a 40 amp +12V rail. Do the testing with only one stick of RAM placed in the primary blue dimm slot, & a monitor connected to an add-in discrete VGA. With the swapping of parts, it is a good idea to remove the power cord from the PSU, remove the battery for awhile, & clear the CMOS.
